What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a safe and minimally invasive skin improvement procedure that works by boosting your skin’s natural collagen production. Even without add-ons and products, the tiny injuries that microneedling makes in your skin kickstart a natural healing process of cell turnover.

During a microneedling procedure, the team at Rejuvenate Skin & Wellness Center uses a roller or tool with many tiny needles to make consistent punctures across your skin’s surface. They do so after applying a numbing agent to keep you comfortable. These puncture wounds are so small that they don’t cause bleeding.

Within your skin, new collagen-rich tissue begins to grow to heal the wounds. After your 30-minute in-office procedure, it takes just two weeks to start seeing your results. You can enhance the effect with add-ons and products available in the office. The team might recommend getting more than one microneedling session, or they may suggest regular sessions over time.

What are the results of microneedling?

Microneedling can improve your skin’s texture, tone, and overall quality. You should consider microneedling as a viable option for treatment if you’d like to improve:

  • Acne scars
  • Large pores
  • Sun spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Scars
  • Roughness

Most people choose to target the skin on their faces with microneedling since it’s prone to sun damage and is almost always visible. However, you can talk to the team at Rejuvenate Skin & Wellness Center about targeting scarred or stretch-marked skin in other areas too.

How can I maximize the results of my microneedling treatment?

Microneedling at Rejuvenate Skin & Wellness Center is available with additional products that can help enhance your results or improve your speed of healing. Be sure to let your provider know if you’re interested in:

Hyaluronic acid

You have the option to infuse your skin with hyaluronic acid after microneedling for added benefits. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component in your skin and other areas of your body. It helps your skin retain moisture and keeps your eyes and joints lubricated. Microneedling with hyaluronic acid is a treatment performed in-office by our skilled aesthetician.

Home health products

The team at Rejuvenate Skin & Wellness Center can guide you to products to take home that you can use to keep your skin looking its best between microneedling sessions.
